Unfortunately business disputes are a part of commercial life. However, with an experienced commercial litigation solicitor these disputes can be effectively resolved without having a negative impact on your company.

At Burt Brill & Cardens, we have many years’ experience and a proven track record of resolving business disputes without the need for litigation.

Preventing Commercial Disputes

We offer a full set of services to assist our clients and prevent commercial disputes from arising. This includes advice as to proposals, agreements and representation at meetings.

If a dispute has already arisen, our expertise in commercial dispute resolution can help you.

Commercial Dispute Resolution

Our strategic awareness, tough approach and ability to negotiate and mediate in highly contentious situations enable us to achieve the outcomes you want. When it comes to commercial dispute resolution, we are able to minimise liability and increase the strength of your legal position.

We deal with the following commercial disputes:

  • Contract Disputes including breach of employment contracts
  • Company and Director or Shareholder disputes
  • Partnership Disputes
  • Insolvency
  • Debt Recovery
  • Building and Construction disputes
  • Intellectual property, patent litigation and information technology disputes

We have both the technical knowledge and experience to effectively resolve commercial disputes however complicated they may appear.

Contract Disputes

If you feel a contract has been breached, we are able to provide legal advice and help you reach a contract dispute resolution. Our solicitors are experienced in breach of contract law and understand all types of contract including their subject matter, terms and their effect. This allows us to break seemingly complex issues down into simpler, more manageable disputes that can then be resolved.

Rather than going to court, we can use dispute mediation to create a dialogue between you and the other person. We will examine the contract and help you come to an agreement together. This method is so effective that you may continue to do business with the company if you so wish.

Burt Brill & Cardens can help you with many types of contract dispute including joint ventures and shareholder agreements, licensing, franchise, partnership and employment agreement.

Breach of Employment Contract – One of the biggest causes of contract disputes tends to be around a breach of employment contract.

Debt Recovery & Collection

Outstanding debts can be a huge burden for a business. We are happy to assist in recovering monies owed to relieve your cashflow as quickly as possible to give you value for money.

Note: If your debt is below £10,000 the small claims court will deal with your debt and you will not be able to recover legal costs but we could provide you with some simple advice and draft your claim to initiate the recovery).

Commercial litigation

In those cases where litigation is required, our team has obtained extensive experience of Court systems at all levels, up to and including the Court of Appeal.

We are experienced in commercial litigation cases including breach of contracts, intellectual property disputes as well as more general corporate disputes.

Their professionalism, advice and guidance was fantastic all the way through the litigation process (which was personally difficult and sensitive for me) until we achieved my desired outcome. The whole experience was made as easy as possible for me due to Alex's and Daisy's empathy and understanding, along side their legal rigour.
